Lea Michele’s Glee sex scene with Cory Monteith was “way awkward”.
The 25-year-old actress’ character Rachel Berry is set to lose her virginity to on/off boyfriend Finn Hudson in the musical TV series and while Lea is thrilled with the overall result, she admitted shooting the intimate sequence was difficult because she sees Cory as a “brother”.
The lovely Lea, GLAMOUR’s October cover girl, explained: “I adore Cory. He’s like my brother and to have to do some of the stuff we did in front of our entire crew … it’s so less sexy than you think. Really, we were in a room with like 20 people around us, sitting by the fireplace. He was sweating so much. I was so grossed out!”
It’s not all bad, thought. Lea went on to say, “I saw some photos and I was like, ‘Damn! We look good.’ As a fan of the show, it’s something I wanted to see for a while and it’s very interesting how everything plays out.”
Despite the awkwardness, Lea is thrilled with the direction the writers have taken with her character and happy they decided to have Rachel finally sleep with Finn.
She said: “It’s very interesting the way that it’s woven into the story line. I love the choice that they made with how it sort of happens. But everything is really a lesson for Rachel to be learned; she sort of makes a decision but always learns a lesson.”
